      Performing Arts Scene in Edmonton

      Edmonton 23 hours ago

      I will be spending two weeks over the Christmas holiday with family in Edmonton and I would like to know if there is just one main website for performing arts events in the city. Like a one stop shop instead of Googling different theatres in the area. I would ask family directly but I am hoping to get tickets as a surprise. Thanks!


    • See all on the Icefields Parkway going North in one day?

      Province of Alberta Aug 19, 2016 at 2:41 PM

      Two youngish senior couples driving from Lake Louise to Jasper on September 12 and planning to stay 2 nights in Jasper before doubling back on the Icefields Parkway and on to (Banff) Canmore. Can you help us plan our stops along the way going North and returning South. (We can also spend some Jasper time on the Parkway if needed.) Obviously want to see the usual top spots, but no need to add hiking. In your recommendations, please tell us if we need to make advanced reservations.

      Thanks so much in advance.

      Jasper National Park Aug 25, 2016 at 7:58 AM

      Hi. I will be visiting Banff-Jasper for 7 days in late October. I was planning to do split the days between the two. Should I spend more time in Banff or Jasper? I will be renting a car from Calgary and drive all the way to Banff and Jasper.

      Also, I was looking at accommodation options in Jasper and there is not much choices. is there any nearby town which is worth staying at? Thanks in advance.

    • One week in Rockies for youngish Seniors

      Province of Alberta Aug 17, 2016 at 9:09 AM


      Two youngish senior couples (non-hikers) driving the Rockies in mid Sept (9-17). After driving to Salmon Arm from Vancouver, based on some online input several months ago, we head to Lake Louise, go to Jasper and then double back to Banff (Canmore) and fly home from Calgary. Itinerary and places for us to stop is as follows:
      Lake Louise (2 nights)
      Trails around Lake
      Chateau Lake Louise Hotel
      Lake Louise Gondola
      Moraine Lake
      Emerald Lake and Takkakaw Falls

      Icefields Parkway to Jasper
      Peyto Lake
      Bow Lake
      Mistaya Canyon
      Wilcox Pass Hike-
      Athabasca Falls
      Snowcoach to Glacier –
      Sunwapta Falls

      Jasper (3nights)
      Malign Lake
      Malign Canyon
      Medicine Lake
      Bow Valley (Highway 1A to Banff)
      Johnson Canyon
      Castle Mtn.

      Banff Gondola
      Bow Falls
      Tunnel Mtn.
      Minnewanka boat tour

      Canmore for lodging (2 nights)

      Comments on itinerary appreciated, but specific question about the drive from Lake Louise to Jasper and back. Must we (and should we) take the Icefields to and from Jasper? Anything missing? Also, is the Annual Park pass advisable? Does not seem so for our group of 4.

      Lake Louise in late October

      Banff National Park Aug 26, 2016 at 7:27 AM

      Hi. I have finally booked my trip to the rockies on Oct16-Oct22. My bf and I will arrive and depart from Calgary and rent a car from there. We are planning to stay in Banff fro 4 days and 3 days in Jasper. I just saw in some reviews that Lake Louise doesn't look as beautiful as it is during summer time. Is this true? Does it really lose it's beautiful turquoise colour in this months? If yes, is there any alternatives or other sceneries that we might enjoy?

      Also, from Jasper, what is the quickest route back to Calgary. Our flight from Calgary leaves at 1230pm so we are wondering what time should we leave Jasper? Is it safe to drive at night? Thanks in advance.

      Banff-Jasper in late October

      Banff Aug 23, 2016 at 1:38 PM

      Hi. I'm planning to go to Banff-jasper in late October for a week but as I was checking the tours. Most of them only operates until mid October and most of the attractions are also only open until mid Octobee. I will be travelling alone so hiring a car is not an option for me. Is it still worth going at this time? Badly need advice. Thank you in advance.

    • Stagette in Banff, Canmore, or Somewhere Similar

      by ellingsen_heather Online Now Feb 23, 2009 at 12:56 AM

      I am planning a destination stagette in Banff, Canmore, or somewhere similar for a Saturday in July. We only have time to go away for one night so we don't want to go too far from Calgary. The bride is open to anything from hiking to a spa day, but we don't want to spend too much money. I've spent lots of time in the Rockies, but never for a stagette party and I was hoping someone could offer some specific suggestions (places to stay etc.) I was thinking that it would be fun to rent a cabin at a ski resort, but I don't know if that is possible for just one night.
      Any help would be appreciated.

      B & B accomodation in Canmore

      by MichaelFalk1969 Online Now Apr 20, 2008 at 1:44 PM

      Hi there
      I have a bit of a dilemma here: I`m going to Banff National Park in September 2008. Everybody says that Canmore is preferrable to Banff acomodation-wise, as it is not as overrun with tourists as Banff is. When I did some research on VT and Tripadvisor on local B&B`s though, most reviews were very, very negative. I get the impression that all accomodation in Canmore is either a dump or overpriced.

      Can anybody recommend a really friendly B&B in Canmore (or Banff or somewhere close to Banff NP) with honeymoon-style rooms, ca. 120-150 CDN per room/night ?

      Thanks, Michael

      Canmore to Banff Transport

      by HazeinOz Online Now Mar 24, 2007 at 6:02 AM

      My Husband and I are staying Falcolncrest in Canmore in June. Could you please advise if and what transportation is available to us for getting in between there and Banf (without having to hire a car) Are there organised tours to different regions, like Lake Louise/Edmonton/Jasper etc or is it easier to go back into Calgary to get to some of these places.
      Sorry, but its the first time we have travelled to Canada from Oz.
      Any tips greatly appreciated.
